Lil Wayne's 'Rebirth' delayed until 2010
By Mariel Concepcion
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Lil Wayne's oft-delayed rock album, "Rebirth," has been pushed back again, from a planned December release to early 2010.
According to a Tweet from Cash Money label head and rapper Bryan "Birdman" Williams, "Rebirth" will be available February 1. A label representative wasn't available for comment.
Originally scheduled for April 7, the album recently was slated for a December 15 release.
The set is to be packaged as a double disc along with the Young Money collective We Are Young Money.
First single off the album, "Prom Queen," reached no. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. Second single "Hot Revolver" debuted at No. 33.
Fall Out Boy, Lenny Kravitz, Travis Barker and Young Money/Cash Money artist Drake all appear on the set.
The album is mostly rock inspired -- with Lil Wayne playing guitar on most of the tracks -- but the leaked song "Fix My Hat" is one of the few rap tracks that made it onto the "Rebirth" set.
